Supermarket chain Iceland has officially opened its new store in Bargoed.
The store, on Lowry Plaza on Hanbury Road, opened on Tuesday, April 9, in the unit formally occupied by the defunct Poundworld.
The Mayor of Caerphilly County Borough Council, Cllr Mike Adams officially opened the store at 8am and was joined by the Mayor of Bargoed Town Council, Cllr Alan Higgs.

I am sure the community will welcome this addition to their local high street.

Iceland’s Managing Director Richard Walker said: “We’re really pleased to be opening our new store at Lowry Plaza. We are proud to be a genuine community retailer, serving customers on high streets throughout the country, and recruiting our store colleagues locally.
“We are naturally particularly delighted to have created 30 new jobs in Bargoed.”
